On 10th June 2019 OpenAIRE-connect project organized a workshop integrated in the programme of the Open Repositories Conference about the OpenAIRE services and tools for content providers. This workshop puts forward an interactive session aiming to provide detailed information on the main services and tools targeting content providers and in which OpenAIRE team foresee to collect contributions from the repository manager’s community to further develop the portfolio of services offered by OpenAIRE.
The workshop provided an interactive demonstration of the dashboard for content providers tools (repositories registration and validation, collection monitor and content enrichments), detailing mainly the catch-all broker service functionalities, such as the metadata enrichments and the usage statistics service. Additionally, this all day workshop introduced attendees the new content acquisition policy, the Guidelines for Literature Repository Managers version 4.0 and the OpenAIRE graph.
On 21st May 2019 OpenAIRE-connect project organized a workshop integrated in the programme of the COAR Annual Meeting about the OpenAIRE services for Content Providers and Research Communities, and the Broker service. The purpose of the workshop was to present the OpenAIRE Dashboard for Content Providers and the OpenAIRE Dashboard for Research Communities, showcasing the content enrichment events and the real use cases from the OpenAIRE-Connect pilot communities.
This workshop, organized by the INCF French node, aims to discuss the needs, solutions and resources available to participants for data management and sharing, then to identify the roadblocks to be lifted and to consider solutions.
The management of large and heterogeneous data has become essential for researchers interested in modelling and data analysis in neuroscience. Furthermore, both funder mandates and the requirements of multicentre studies and other collaborations impose a need to share and reuse data produced in humans and animals.
The presentation “Let’s do open neuroimaging sciences”, by Camille Maumet, presented the OpenAIRE Research Community Dashboard focusing on how OpenAIRE Connect facilitate Research Communities adoption of Open Science publishing principles by supporting artefact publishing tools as-a-Service, showcasing the Neuroinformatics Dashboard. The dashboard was also presented and demonstrated during the poster session.
On 29th April 2019 OpenAIRE-connect project organized a workshop within Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD) as part of the “Fisheries and Aquaculture Management” use case of the OpenAIRE-connect project (https://beta.fam.openaire.eu/). The aim of this ‘use case’ is to publish on Zenodo (i.e. assign digital object identifiers, or DOIs) the publicly-accessible IOTC (Indian Ocean Tuna Commission - https://iotc.org/) documents that are of scientific interest to the “Fisheries and Aquaculture Management” community.
On January 28th 2019 OpenAIRE-connect project organized a workshop within the EuroMarine Young Scientist Working Group meeting about the OpenAIRE services for Research Communities. The purpose of the workshop was to present the OpenAIRE Dashboard for Research Communities, showcasing the European Marine Science Dashboard (https://beta.mes.openaire.eu/) and run a test drive session with the members of the EuroMarine Young Scientists Working Group (OYSTER).
The meeting took place at the University of Cádiz, Spain, co-located with the EuroMarine General Assembly and integrated in the OYSTER programme meeting. All the participants were invited to proceed with a test drive of the Research Community Dashboard and discuss about Open Science practices and views for Marine Science.
This workshop have presented the new OpenAIRE service for Research Communities, showcasing two real use cases from the five pilot communities within OpenAIRE-connect project (i: Neuroinformatics from France Life Imaging national infrastructure; ii: European Marine Science from Pangaea and Atlas community; iii: Cultural Heritage and Digital Humanities from the PARTHENOS research infrastructure; iv: Fisheries and aquaculture management from the BlueBridge and MARBEC infrastructures; and v: Environment & Economy from the national/EU node of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network), addressing community based solutions, and also the demonstration of the features available for research initiatives and infrastructures.
